White collar crimes that drain the nation of precious foreign exchange is connected to the funding of international terrorism. The much-told Hollywood theme is retold in the Indian context with much needed technical wizadry.

Storyline

16 December, 1971 was the day when India won the war against Pakistan, and was also able to liberate Bangla Desh from Pakistan's rule. Although the ruling dictator of Pakistan surrendered unconditionally to India, some of the hard-lined Pakistani soldiers were bitter and angry at the surrender, as they wanted to continue fighting the Indians until their last breath. They retreated in silent and later came together to form their own groups of Jihaadi soldiers to carry out terrorists attacks against neighboring India. One of them was Dost Khan (Gulshan Grover). Although the Indian authorities were aware of Dost Khan's terrorist activities, they were unable to apprehend him as he kept changing disguises, and always kept one step ahead of the authorities. This matter was assigned to Chief of Revenue Intelligence Vir Vijay singh (Danny Denzongpa) and his team of Vikram (Milind Soman), Victor (Sushant Singh), and Sheeba (Dipanita Sharma).

An excellent well-researched and unique plot supported by great cinematography, special effects and most importantly direction.

16 December should most definitely be considered for an award this year. A patriotic storyline and technologically enhanced yet believable action sequences will keep the local crowds attracted. But this movie has something for everyone. The technologically savvy will also definitely have something to appreciate with the holographic imaging scenes and fun little detective gadgets(For the first IMac lovers, there's plenty of those in here to). For average Hindi movie standards, the special effects were extremely well done. Portraying not only the works of terrorist organizations and political scoundrels, this film also does justice to the military and other special security operatives by exposing some their features and capabilities (if they are exaggerated, there is really no way for the layman to be sure). Apart from the thoroughly futile attempts at maintaining the usual love story in the background by adding a couple of songs, 16th December will keep you glued to the screen for the whole 2 and a half hours.
